Hi there,Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the possibility of HIV transmission through accidentally swallowing a pubic hair found in fried chicken at a restaurant. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be No Risk (transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario).
The scenario mentioned above does not meet the three components of the HIV Transmission Equation (see down below).
In order for HIV transmission to occur in this circumstance, a number of requirements must be fulfilled. HIV transmission occurs when the following conditions are met: There must be the presence of HIV positive fluid (semen, pre-cum, vaginal fluid, rectal fluid, blood, or breastmilk), coupled with direct access to the bloodstream. This scenario is considered to be No Risk. Hair does not contain HIV particles in addition it did not come in contact with direct access to the bloodstream, therefore transmission of HIV can occur.
Recommendation: No need for an HIV test with the scenario provided, please refer to a healthcare professional for other health related questions.
